After a recent announcement of their own VOD service, the folks over at Black Fawn Distribution have been hard at work prepping for a new physical release to add to their catalogue.

Produced by Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, Bed of the Dead is ready to make your most blood-soaked dreams comes true. The film is available now on VOD platforms across Canada including iTunes and Black Fawn Distribution’s own Black Fawn VOD, with a physical release slated for June 18, 2019.

Bed of the Dead follows two young couples who visit the city’s oldest singles club for some late night fun. They soon find themselves stuck
on a haunted antique bed where leaving leads to a bloody end. While plagued by frightening hallucinations, the group must figure out the
bed’s secrets before they’re gruesomely picked off one by one.

Expanding on the haunted furniture sub-genre, Bed of the Dead will receive the Black Fawn Distribution collector’s edition treatment. The collector’s edition will be presented as a 2 disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and will feature an exclusive slipcase, a documentary on the making of Death Bed: The Bed that Eats (the 70s cult classic and the only other film to feature a killer bed), a music box player featuring previously unreleased songs from composer Steph Copeland, and more.

Bed of the Dead has seen a long journey from its conception to its release but, we couldn’t be more proud to have finally fully acquired
this title,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager Chris Benn. “Horror fans have waited long enough for this film to be released and we wanted to get it into their hands as quickly as possible. It’s simply a great addition to any collection.”

“It took a few years but, finally this weird little flick we made is available for your viewing pleasure,” states director Jeff Maher. “Horror fans should enjoy the buckets of blood as much as the cast disliked being covered in them.”

The film is the directorial debut of Jeff Maher (Director of Photography for The Heretics, Let Her Out, Bite) and stars Colin Price (The Heretics, Murdoch Mysteries), Alyssa King (Slasher, Berkshire County), Gwenlyn Cumyn (Barbelle, Chasing Valentine), Dennis Andres (Workin’ Moms, Killjoys) and George Krissa (Blood and Fury).

“This is our fifth special edition Blu-ray that we’ve released under the Black Fawn Distribution banner,” explains General Manager Chad Archibald. “Jeff Maher shot a gorgeously dark film and Bed of the Dead deserves to be seen in the best quality possible. This is also the only
version of the film that will have these special features attached to it so, it’s a must have for horror collectors.”

The Blu-ray/DVD will be available on its own or as part of a limited edition “Blacklist” package which will feature a signed copy of the film and a variety of exclusive collectibles. Pre-orders for the film can be placed  through Black Fawn Distribution.
